If you haven’t already heard, Batuk is the pan-African music collective you need to know. Comprised of South African producers Spoek Mathambo and Aero Manyelo alongside artist and vocalist Manteiga, the group is using house music as a vehicle to connect the African diaspora through rhythm culture and language.

After arriving on the scene in January with the Mozambique-recorded Daniel EP and its equally mesmerizing visuals, the group returns this week with a new track and video.


The infectious zouk and house-influenced party song “Call Me Naughty” features frequent Batuk collaborator Nandi Ndlovu. Its video sees the full crew hit the town for a wild time in Johannesburg.

The track will appear on the group’s forthcoming debut album, Musica da Terra, which, like the Daniel EP, is the result of pan-continental collaboration. The project features contributions from the likes of Nandi Ndlovu, Mozambicans Grupo Zore and Grupo Makarita and Ugandans Giovanni Kiyingi, Annet Nandujja, Lebon and Nilotica.

Musica da Terra arrives May 27th on Teka Records.

You’re gonna want to turn this one up.
